of national intelligence and general keith alexander, the head of the national security agency, the nsa, will be testifying answering questions, presumably about the nsa surveilance program including reports over the past few days that the u.s. has been spying on allied leaders, including monitoring the personal cell phone of the german chancellor angela merkel. we'll monitor what's going on, bring you the highlights. stand by for that. right now he's just opening up the hearing. meanwhile, president obama is being hammered on many fronts right now. how much did he know about the surveilance of friendly allies? why didn't he know about the problems that were going to plague the health care website? i want you to listen to part of the new article from cnn's chief political analyst gloria borger she just wrote and posted on cnn.com. i'll read you a line. the ultimate irony may be this. a president who extols the virtues of government has now been sucked into the big government vortex experiencing up close and personal as they say what it feels like to lose control to the bureaucrats. the
at the national security agency or national security desk, why didn't we try to send somebody from somewhere? what happened? >> hi, chris. i think people need to understand this is a situation where as much as the people on the ground working with the state department in libya knew that the threat was there and requested security, the state department just wasn't prepared to deal with this situation. and by being prepared, you have a list of things that when something goes wrong like this you go down that list and make certain phone calls and notify certain people. and that just wasn't the case. they had numbers from the d.o.d. that had expired. then you run into a situation where these agencies, the cia, the state department, and the military don't necessarily talk to each other and are in communications as much as you'd think. >> you know, as an american that doesn't work for me. the president, the security agency people are sitting in the white house. they're getting an instantaneous report of what's going on there. what weren't they looking at? where was the u.s. cavalry to use an american ima
at the level of the national security agency and the way the protocols are set up at this point, that's sort of where the line of information would stop. there isn't necessarily a reason why they would tell the white house there's no protocol that insists that they do. and in the case of the monitoring the chancellor merkel and some 35 other leaders, nsa hadn't brought it to the white house's attention. >> the dates are significant because the monitoring dates go back to 2002 on angela merkel, which also would explain from the officials quoted here why the president would not be brought into the loop on this. as bizarre as that sounds to some people. >> at what level it sounds a little odd. you could see a situation where a program starts as far back as 2002 and keeps -- nsa is a very large organization with incredibly monitoring surveillance programs and these things kind of have -- unless someone puts a stop to them. >> many are processing what this means to the world and the u.s. reputation as we know european leaders are quite angry over these revelations. i want to play with european pa
to tell me the national security agency had the power to spy on whomever they pleased and may have taken advantage of that power? >> you can bet nsa surveillance will be a topic of conversation when they meet with secretary of state john kerry in the oval office. a delegation of european participate parliament officials met with mike rogers to discuss reports that the u.s. is collecting data from their citizens and spied on world leaders from 35 different countries, including the personal cell phone the german angela merkel for more than a decade. the nsa went on record to say that the president did not know about it. it makes me feel worse actually. the president has been forced to apologize not only to merkel but france's president and brazil's president. the eu is threatening to cancel pending trade talks. thanks, edward snowden, we appreciate it. let's spin. there's a lot of directions to go. one of the dynamic that's really interesting, to consider president obama's position here, i think we've all been trying to figure out where exactly he stands. he's been hawkish in some ways and
.s. ambassador i had intimate knowledge of some of the things that the national security agency was doing, so let's at least understand several things. the nsa will vacuum up anything and everything they can get their hands on because no one, no one other than the president and his top national security adviser, can tell them not to do something, so that's point one. point two, the damage that has been done to american economic interests as a result of this revelation is as important as the foreign policy consequences, because what european company will want to use american networking capacity and other types of computer technologies as a result of this. finally, one other thing. i'm really embarrassed for this white house. i feel awfully sorry for the president because this is basically going to undermine the -- our transatlantic alliance for many years to come, just at a time when we're negotiating an iran agreement. where our european allies are so important to us. >> meanwhile there are some republican leaders coming out, republican congressman peter king defending the u.s. spying on world le
are emerging about the national security agency's massive spying operation. according to "the washington post," the nsa secretly broke into the main communications links that connect yahoo! and google data centers around the world. and the italian media is reporting that the nsa spied as well on the vatican, spying on both pope benedict and pope francis. the nsa has now just issued an outright denial of the italian media reports. and unless you think the united states is alone in spying efforts, the russians are trying to keep up with us. russian operatives reportedly handing out goody bag to world leaders who were attending september's g-20 summit meeting. it turns out the russians were giving the delegates souvenir usb drives, phone chargers and teddy bears they had bugged. they bugged a teddy bear. who would have imagined? the russians deny the italian media report. joining us for more on benghazi and other foreign policy challenges facing the nation, general jack keen, retired four-star army general, former army vice chief of staff, fox news military analyst. general, great to have you wi

. those professionals in the national security agency and elsewhere in the intelligence community are focused on one thing only, keeping americans safe and troops and diplomats abroad safe and keeping our allies safe. we need talent across the board. there's no question these revelations have caused some tensions in our relationships but i think the fundamental fact that the american people need to know is the national security agency is focused on foreign intelligence targets, those individuals and groups out there in the world who have as their primary focus doing harm to the american people, doing harm to our allies and they do a great job every day. >> isn't leadership on that issue then for the president to push off all of these attacks about spying and who we're spying on and whether it's right, if it's so important especially in a post 9/11 world, isn't the strength of leadership saying we spy, you may not like it, that's how it works. we're not going to reveal too much about this. think about it in the next election if you don't like it. the idea reviewing plans the presid
